Here is a little something that I'd like to share. Slacker radio. LOVE it. I also loved Pandora, but this is much better because if you subscribe, you get unlimited skips, and it also shows the bio of the band, AND.....lyrics. You can create your own stations or choose from their 'ready made' stations and genre's. It is amazing.

Rewire me, Oh Lord

I don't know why, but all these thoughts of things I need to do, make me procrastinate even more. I see some stuff, I know some important things I need to do: like make appointments for my kids shots, physicals, dentist.....what the heck is my deal???? I need a personal assistent. Or something.

Here I sit. I better get on the ball or I'll never get anything accomplished. I know for sure that today I want to clean out my van and load up the stuff for my little shop. I know for sure that tomorrow, when my kids are at VBS, I need to move to a smaller booth at my little shop so I can boost my potential of making a bigger profit than $3, like this month! Booooooooo.

Prioritize Lora. Focus. GET your a$$ off the computer and hop to it. Busta move!

Bye for now.

To do, to do, to do.

I have so many things I want and need to do, I had better get going on them. I am a queen of procrastination, and I swear I have undiagnosed ADD because my thoughts are constantly running and I forget what I'm doing or what I intended on doing. I ramble a lot. I lose focus fast because I'm easily sidetracked. I interrupt. I don't mean to be rude, but I tend to say things when I think of them, because I'll forget if I have to wait! Isn't that horrible?

Crafty things I want to do:
pedestal cake trays
souvenier handbags
pin-on buttons for holidays
gothic dolls
upcycled crafting: bows, beads, & more
paint on glass

I love to paint!

pre-made scrapbook pages
painters cap crafts
decopauge something
learn to sew--- I think I have a fab designer living inside me, I just dont know how to put it into works....I'm gonna do it.
felted wool soap
freezer paper stencils

I know there is more that I am forgetting.

Crafts to do with the kids:
I have 5 children, and I have a good friend with 5 children that are exactly the same ages as mine. I have invited her over for a once a week craft day with all the kids.

Hot Rocks
icecube painting
play with picnik and make a favorite picture
decorate a photoframe for said picture
garden rocks
fingerprint keychains
painted washer crafts

That's enough for now. I should be doing a list of things that need done around the house....I have such a strong desire for crafting. But then I get frustrated with the mess it entails....

Today I took my five boys to play ball with friends of our who also have 5 kids. The ten of them hit the ball and then moved on to basketball. I love having friends that are the same age as mine, but not when mine act up.

First ever for this mama

Just trying out the blogging world. I am completely addicted to many other momblogs, so I thought I'd try my own. That is, if I can fit in time. At the current moment, I am on summer vacation with my five sons, and there is not enough time in the day to keep up. I love to indulge online reading blogs and all the great stories, ideas, tips & tricks...but really need to put them to use, and share my own.

I'm excited to have a place to store all of my favorite stuff....and what's inside my head.
